Data modeling tools should be competent at the basics of database modeling. They should be able to create logical and physical data models, propagate changes from one model to the other in both directions, create database scripts, and reverse-engineer databases.
However, not all data modeling tools are equal. It s the advanced yet critical features that separate a suitable data model from an excellent data model.
Here are four features that distinguish ER/Studio Data Architect from the rest of the data modeling tools in the industry:
- Manage three or more data models in a single file
ER/Studio can manage three or more data models for database migrations in a single model file. This makes it easier to track similarities and differences, as well as the data mappings that are necessary for a successful database migration.
- Import extract-transform-load (ETL) code with metadata
ER/Studio can use the built-in import bridge for metadata to import extract-transform-load code for database migrations. It will create several physical data models representing the source and target databases in a single file, linking them together using visual data lineage.
- Contribute to data governance
ER/Studio Data Architect includes the ability to view and relate business terms to data modeling assets. ER/Studio Team Server can then display these relationships as diagrams and push the industry standard data governance tools, enabling data architects to contribute knowledge to the data governance project.
- Model NoSQL
ER/Studio allows NoSQL models, such as MongoDB, to be modeled as a standard physical data model. Users can apply the standard design and documentation practice of linking logical and physical data models in the standard tool.
